International School Award 2021

Celebrating our Good News!

This week we received the news that we have achieved the British Council Intermediate International Dimension Award. Since September, the school has worked hard to further embed international work into the curriculum, thereby making their students more aware of global issues.


We have gained experience of working on collaborative projects with schools in Spain and France, deepening the impact of learning and increasing levels of collaborative activities.


The British Council commented, “As a school, Countess Gytha have an excellent range of activities seeking to develop and embed a whole school commitment to international teaching and learning. There is an evident commitment to make global connections and undertake and understand global challenges. The school’s commitment to support young learners, who are keen to take action to bring about a better world, is admirable. The work in your small school to highlight issues around the natural world and climate change are excellent, as are your projects highlighting international issues and looking at countries, flags, faiths and culture around the world.”

Well done everyone. We are looking forward to building on this award, throughout the coming year and we are aiming for full accreditation by July 2023!

The International School Award (ISA) celebrates the achievements of schools that do exceptional work in international education. Fostering an international dimension in the curriculum is at the heart of the British Council’s work with schools, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need for life work in today’s world.
